NUMSA commemorates the 100 year anniversary of the Russian Revolution

NUMSA and the United Front to picket outside Eskom Headquarters on Thursday

29 November 2017, Posted in Press Releases

The National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (NUMSA) together with the United Front will be staging a picket at Eskom offices at Megawatt Park in Johannesburg on Thursday.

NUMSA and the United Front will be staging a demonstrating against Eskom’s request for a 19.9% tariff increase.

The Eskom board and management are clearly deaf and blind to the suffering of the working class because they decided to make this proposal to NERSA inspite of the fact that there is glaring evidence that the majority of people simply cannot afford an increase in the electricity rate. We call on the Energy Regulator to reject their request.

We demand free, safe and accessible energy for the working class and the poor!

Members of the media are invited to attend the picket:
DATE                                     : 30 November, 2017
TIME                                       : 11:00 AM – 2:00pm
VENUE                                  : Eskom Megawatt Park, 1 Maxwell drive, Sunninghill Sandton, Johannesburg
